PostSubject: Schleich Packaging Mix-up?   Tue Sep 20, 2016 4:28 am

I stopped by my local Walmart last night to pick up a few things. I don't usually shop there, but I wanted to see if they had any new Yowies. They had  only one of the new eggs left, with a Galapagos tortoise I already had. But at least the chocolate tastes a little better now! Anyway...

So I went to the toy section to see what Schleichs they might have, mostly just looking. And I see that all of their Schleichs are the boxed ones now. They had many Tennessee Walker Mares available, but this one was a little different...

Not a "she" for one... and he also hasn't been available since 2003?? scratch

At first I thought someone had re-wrapped their old model and returned it somehow, but the model looks freshly painted and the plastic ties don't look like they have been manipulated. His tummy says he was Made in China.

Has anyone else seen any long-discontinued Schleichs reissued by accident? If you have a Walmart near you, it might be worth a look to see if they have any other factory escapees out there! Wink

Also, sorry for the dark pictures. Like the Starks say, winter is coming... What a Face
